We Proudly Present Addiction Counseling Graduate Leslie Streeter
On November 03, 2021

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style.” These words by famous author Maya Angelou has inspired Leslie Streeter to work hard and receive her own counseling degree from Stautzenberger College.  She is particularly invested in helping teenagers due to the rate of teen overdoses.

Leslie overcame many difficulties during her short time studying here at Stautzenberger.  She moved here from North Carolina and couldn’t find a job - so she invested in herself and went back to school.  While in school, she lost multiple family members and dealt with overwhelming grief.  She also homeschooled both of her children - one of whom is autistic.

What you Learn in Addiction Counseling

Leslie took several classes in her journey at Stautzenberger including Motivational Interviewing, Multicultural Counseling in Addiction, and Group Process.  She learned how to:

  • Implement several types of therapy
  • Adjust therapy to fit the needs of different populations and ethnic groups
  • Facilitating therapy in group settings
